Chocolate Chip Cookies
Adapted from Original Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/8 cup granulated sugar
3/8 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flours, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, sugars, and vanilla in a large mixer bowl until creamy. Add egg, beat. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheet (I used parchment paper).
Bake 9-11 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: 2 dozen cookies
This is a halved version of the cookie recipe found on the back of Tollhouse chocolate chips. I don't always have good luck with substituting whole wheat flour, but the chocolate chips offset the "wheaty" taste. Halving the recipe was very easy as well.
